    I had the same problem.

    Do you install the update KB3035583 ?

    See if you have downloaded all the files:
    Location: %windir%\system32\GWX
    See if you have downloaded all the files:
    %windir%\system32\GWX
    There must be:
    Files:
    1. config.cat
    2. config.xml
    3. GWX.exe
    4. GWXConfigManager.exe
    5. GWXUI.dll
    6. GWXUX.exe
    7. GWXUXWorker.exe
    8. TelemetryStore.xml
    9. TelemetryStore.xml.lock

    Folders:
    Download
    • config.cat
    • config.xml
    DownloadSwap
    • 64- language folders
    • 2 files
    If they are all there, you must also have a Scheduled Task:

    If they are all there, you must also have a Scheduled Task:
    See, if does it exist and simply don't start, then is problem with Windows (I had the same situation with one pc)
    Task Scheduler => (left) Task Scheduler Library => Microsoft => Windows => Setup => gwx
    Now You must see (centre)
    1. launchtrayprocess
    2. refreshgwxconfig
    they must have status - Redy

    If You open Taskmanager, You must see there white window named GWX

    If it also is, but You don't have icon on taskbar, ie something is wrong. You can start it also manually, if it starts, is OK, but if it starts and stops again, You may try to uninstall it at all (KB3035583)
    If You want manually install

    Code:
    x86 - http: //download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/updt/2015/05/windows8.1-kb3035583-x86_7e7959687879fb4ca23561df51096bb0b842b1aa.msu
    
    x64 - http: //download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/updt/2015/05/windows8.1-kb3035583-x64_d8cd2e0f87835a50599c26eb3d974e526e7c3025.msu
    
    • If You want to run it manually, make shortcut
    %windir%\system32\GWX\GWX.exe /tasklaunch
    (after .exe is 1 space) and run it as administrator.

    • If it starts working, then you need it only once, but you can easily disable the automatic start when clicking on the above given two tasks in Task Scheduler with right mouse button and select - Disable

    I'm sorry, I can't post links! I have just so few postings here.

    I'm not sure the icon matters at all, you will still be able to download and install it yourself.

    I agree with you,
    Windows collects information, to find out, how many is those people at all, who are interested in the renewal.
    NB! They also collects information about your current system.

    search "win10fix_full.bat" it will show you a microsoft answers page that someone posted a link to this file in dropbox that for me fixed this icon in Win 8.1 and win 7 x64. I installed both to test and not one popped up that icon. I used this and its there works great..

    Is there any way to force the GWX program to refresh its compatibility report? On one PC it failed due to insufficient memory, I added more but it is still showing the old data (and old timestamp). On another PC the results page says "This report isn't available right now".
